Thought Picnic: How would you like to have one?

One question and the answer

You might think there is no clear thinking about what god is; how would you like to have one?

You might believe there is no god, how would you like to have one?

You might believe there are many gods, how would you like to have one?

If you had one god and you were in a desperate situation that you needed a miracle and one that could guarantee one, how would you like to have one?

If you had one god, one who can wipe out your past and history, giving you the reality of a new and changed life, how would you like to have one?

If you had one god and he fully understands you by taking on every situation and experience you have ever encountered, how would you like to have one?

If you had one god that says with him nothing shall be impossible, how would you like to have one?

If you had one god of enormous possibility that he could die for you and beyond that rise again from the dead to guarantee everything he died for, how would you like to have one?

If you had one god of the amazingly incredible that it just blows your mind, how would you like to have one?

If you had one god whose expression of love for you is his grace, his mercy, his forgiveness, his righteousness, his kindness and so much more, how would you like to have one?

If you had one god who offers to live in you and work in you, how would you like to have one?

If you had one god to whom you can express you fears, your anxieties, your hopes and your desires freely, how would you like to have one?

If you had one god that can you pour your heart out to him and know he listens, hears and helps, how would you like to have one?

If you had one god who has done all the hard work of relationship building that all he requires is that you just believe in what he has already done, how would you like to have one?

If you had one god that you can speak to freely in any language and yet so quietly or powerfully, how would you like to have one?

If you once had a tug on your heart strings, somewhere deep inside you about the possibilities, you probably want to have one.

One such does exist, the maker of all things; so great and mighty and yet so personal too; whose love is boundless, who offers ability, vision and provision beyond what your mind is able to comprehend, who takes you from the earthly limitations of the natural to the supernatural in an instant that changes your life forever.

Taking your faults to give you faultlessness, your inadequacies to give to you ability, your weaknesses to give you strength, your poverty to give you prosperity, your questions to give you answers, your anxieties to give you peace, your sicknesses to give you health, your sentence to give you an unconditional pardon – an expression of love that no other god has the capacity or ability to provide all as close to you as your breath; if you just dared say God I need you.

He will reveal himself and his wondrous being just as he did and still does through Jesus Christ for the first step, now, into the eternity of amazing love and power that begins with that one desire, how would you like to have one?
